Globally renowned designer and our former guest editor Jonathan Adler not only observes interior trends – he invents them. So, when the New York-based personality sat down with Livingetc we were curious to hear which design features are set to make waves in the new year. The answer, Jonathan Adler shares, is down to you.
Yes, the modern decorating idea that will make waves in your home is entirely subjective – as Jonathan Adler urges you to follow (or break) your own decorating rules as we rapidly approach the new year.
Celebrating his partnership with quintessential London Gin company Sipsmith (opens in new tab), Jonathan did reveal that some retro features may remain at the peak of the industry, but it is important to decorate in a way that will work for you.
‘What’s trending for 2022? What isn’t! I could tell you that ‘rattan and pastels are going to be huge! which, though true, is too prescriptive,’ he says. ‘There are no rules when it comes to decorating: love what you love and it will work.’
So, the trendiest thing to do in 2022 is what you love. This is a design idea we can get behind, especially as Jonathan Adler’s comments have never felt quite so timely.
Yes, the designer’s revelation comes alongside Pantone’s recent Color of the Year announcement – in a move that, they hope, will also promote ‘personal inventiveness and creativity.’
According to Pantone’s Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, the color in question, Very Peri, ‘displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence’ that provokes you to experiment with courageous design choices and create something personal – from your own imagination.
So, in a time when personal trends are not only accepted – but encouraged – Jonathan Adler's words have never felt quite so current.
The designer and color powerhouse Pantone are in agreement. This is the year you make your own interior design trends. The future looks wholly personal indeed.
And, before the new year arrives, you can discover more about the Sipsmith x Jonathan Adler ‘Perfect Your Serve’ collaboration online at JonathanAdler.com (opens in new tab) and in select Jonathan Adler stores in the United States.
The gift set (above) begins at $160 while supplies last.
